## Python Application Notes: pathname manipulations

I usually process simulation results in batch, which is generally associated with pathname manipulations. In this article, I take notes of pathname manipulations from my programming experiences.

## Simple regression analysis using Python

This article introduces simple regression analysis illustrated with a simple example and shows how to calculate it using Python.

## Calculate connected dominating sets (CDS)

It is believed that the minimum connected dominating set problem cannot be solved in polynomial time. To the best of my knowledge, there is no source code available for approximation algorithms. Therefore, I decide to implement one proposed by M. Rai in 2009.

## Python Application Notes: packages, modules and classes

For better structuring a Python project, I decide to learn of packages, modules and classes. This article also shows how to import all modules and classes in a directory.

## Read and write CSV files with Python

I am analyzing a trace in GTFS, a collection of CSV files. Each record of a csv file is consisting of one or more fields speparated by commas ,. It is error-prone to read csv files by simply using [line.split(',') for line in f.readlines()] for fields might contain commas. Therefore, I decide to switch to the Python module csv.

## Python Application Notes: mutable, hashable and iterable

I sometimes encounter problems like TypeError: unhashable type: 'list' while programming. Therefore, I decide to set aside some time to undertand the important Python concepts, mutable, hashable and iterable.

## Build a Windows executable from Python scripts on Linux

My main development platform is Ubuntu. The cross-compilation feature is removed from PyInstaller since 1.5. In this article, I’ll show you how to package a Windows executable from Python scripts using PyInstaller under wine.

## Read and write Excel files with Python

I would like to do statistical analysis on an Excel file. Rather than learn a new programming language VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), I would rather work with Excel files in Python. This post shows how to read and write Excel files with Python.

## NumPy Application Notes: Basic Usage

I learn of NumPy while seeking one way to read a text file effectively. Therefore, I decide to put some notes here for convenient access.
